Mohamad is a 23-year-old single man. He has been working in raising sheep and selling them for nine years. Mohamad had to start working at the age of 14 to help his parents in making their living and increasing their income.

Mohamad is well-known in the region and many of his customers are local butchers who trust him and prefer to deal with him more than any other person working this kind of business.

To keep on replying to his customers' needs and to expand his business and increase his capital, Mohamad applied for a youth loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to increase the number of his sheep to increase his income. This is his first cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower; he hopes that the future relationship will be invested in expanding his working sector.
